Joseph Gordon-Levitt's series Mr Corman is coming to Apple TV+ in August.

The 10-episode Apple Original comedy series created by, directed by and starring Emmy and SAG Award-winner Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who also executive produces, is set to premiere globally on 6 August, on Apple TV+.

According to a press release, Mr Corman follows the days and nights of Josh Corman (played by Gordon-Levitt), an artist at heart but not by trade. A career in music hasn’t panned out, and he teaches fifth grade at a public school in the San Fernando Valley. His ex-fiancé Megan has moved out, and his high school buddy Victor has moved in. He knows he has a lot to be thankful for but finds himself struggling nevertheless through anxiety, loneliness, and a sinking suspicion that he sucks as a person.

In addition to Gordon-Levitt, Mr Corman stars Arturo Castro, Debra Winger, Bobby Hall aka Logic, Alexander Jo, Juno Temple, Jamie Chung, Shannon Woodward and Hector Hernandez.

Gordon-Levitt, in a video message on Twitter, expressed his gratitude to real-life teachers and officially announced the release date of the upcoming series.

The series marks a return to TV for Gordon-Levitt, who grew up on the small screen with roles on multiple series, most notably his co-starring turn on the long-running NBC comedy 3rd Rock from the Sun.

Produced for Apple TV+ by A24, Mr Corman is created by, directed by and executive produced by Joseph Gordon Levitt along with Bruce Eric Kaplan, Ravi Nandan and Inman Young. Pamela Harvey-White serves as producer.
